Forums - Gaming Discussion - Red Barrels: Outlast 1 and 2 announced for Switch (Q1 2018), news about Outlast 3, more

Full Status Update from Red Barrels:

First off, we wanted to take a moment to thank all of you that have bought Outlast 2 and have been supporting the studio for more than 5 years now. Red Barrels was nothing more than a dream, but with a lot of blood, sweat and beers it has now become a small, fully independent studio with a kickass team who can work miracles. 

We strive to create unique experiences and take risks. Hopefully, we’ll manage to entertain you for years to come.

About the future, many of you have been requesting a DLC. While the first Outlast was made with the idea of a DLC in mind, that was not the case for Outlast 2. We’ve considered many options, but none of them felt appropriate for a DLC. Outlast 2 was created to make you feel like a rat in a maze, without any knowledge of what’s outside the maze.

We will, at some point, make an Outlast 3 and answers will be given. You can also check out The Murkoff Account’s epilogue. It takes places right after the events of the second game and offers some insight into the events in the game. (https://redbarrelsgames.com/comic-books/)

Currently we’re working on something a lot of you have been asking for... It won’t be a sequel to Outlast or Outlast 2, but it will be a distinct experience set in the Outlast universe. We can’t say more right now, we first need to make sure we can make it work. Like I mentioned, we strive to be risk-takers and this one is a pretty big challenge. If all goes well, we’ll soon be able to reveal more.

In the meantime, the Outlast franchise will be released on the Nintendo Switch during the first quarter of 2018.

The bigger news piece for me, here!



                                                                                                             

Nice! I love horror games, and I enjoyed the first Outlast. I still need to get the collection so I can try out the DLC and Outlast 2.

I picked it up for $15 on Black Friday. I'm a winner!

Black Friday is not the best here, maybe for Boxing Day I'll be able to get it though!

Hm...that's pretty cool! Hopefully it gets advertised somewhat well and hopefully there are physical copies on store shelves. I may or may not pick it up, I'm assuming that because it's a dark close-quarters game it won't have to be downgraded too much. But then again, might just pick it up on PS4.

^This is what I like to see. For me if a DLC is planned too far ahead of release date, it kind of ruins the idea of the DLC. At least partially.

I see now.  Good luck in your future purchase.



Got the first free with ps plus and bought the dlc cheap on sale. Haven't bought the second one yet. Good series.



Sounds like they're making some kind of spinoff in the Outlast universe, and they say alot of fans asked for it, whatever it was. Not sure what that could be though. Maybe a more direct sequel to the first game? Or a prequel perhaps?



Hoping, is that how you spell hoping? Hopefully number 3 comes to switch as well.
